FIRE BY NIGHT
By Glenn H. Jackson
"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]
in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB
THE IMPORTANCE OF FORGIVENESS AND FORGIVING
Words of prophecy:
of the key elements of one "abiding" [dwelling] in the place of being continually cleansed from ALL defilement of flesh and spirit is for them to hold absolutely NO unforgiveness [resentment, bitterness, offense] in their heart.
us cleanse ourselves from everything that contaminates and defiles body and spirit, and bring [our] consecration to completeness in the [reverential] fear of God".... 2 Corinthians 7:1 The Amplified Translation
is great importance in one NOT taking offense - and forgiving immediately when there is any form of transgression against them. One should ALWAYS cast away any offense or potential offense immediately and forgive instantly where they know to forgive. Doing
these types of things, as well as remaining as"silent" as possible in the presence of those who are inclined towards walking in pride and/or fear are precisely how one shuts the Enemy and his schemes completely out.
whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him and let it drop [leave it, let it go], in order that your Father Who is in heaven may also forgive you your [own] failings and shortcomings and let them drop. But if you do not forgive,
neither will your Father in heaven forgive your failings and shortcomings".... Mark 11:25-26 The Amplified Translation
...."[Now having received the Holy Spirit, and being led and directed
by Him] if you forgive the sins of anyone, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of anyone, they are retained".... John 20:23 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
we thank You and praise You that You are continually blessing us with a deeper revelation of the importance of forgiveness [and forgiving] - a very effective tool to not only release others into Your Hands and working but, also, to shut the Enemy's schemes
down completely on all fronts. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
